David Mize family

My wife Kelly and I are both native to Richmond. I graduated from Hampden-Sydney College and Kelly graduated from The University of Virginia. We reside in Western Henrico county in the River Road Corridor, where we raise our three sons and the two German Shorthaired Pointers.

Our family enjoys a very active lifestyle and a wide array of outdoor activities. Richmond’s close proximity to the ocean and the Blue Ridge Mountains provides for boating, fishing, skiing, hiking, snowboarding, sporting activities and wonderful opportunities for outdoor living.

We have a working farm. “Solitude Farm” in Louisa County. The farm allows us get away and family time. Caring for the cows and sheep have brought a wealth of experiences to our family. My two older sons graduated from Washington and Lee University. My youngest son is graduating from Saint Christopher’s School in Richmond and will attend his choice of university in the fall.

We have raised the boys to get involved with the many charitable opportunities in the Richmond area and contribute to the community through giving of their time. Our community has so many ways to meet great people and form friendships while helping improve the lives of others.

Richmond is also in a great location for getting to Washington DC and New York City. Our family enjoys taking the train up to enjoy the “Big City” life for weekend excursions and holiday trips.

Our life in Richmond is also full of enjoyment in the city’s wonderful eclectic food scene and the ease in which we can get around the entire city with little traffic and many fun places to dine.

Hampden Sydney College

Bachelor of the Arts BA – History

My undergraduate education at Hampden-Sydney College taught me an understanding of history,economics and written expression. My Business education in the world of Real Estate has given me tools to provide clients the highest level of professionalism in this industry.

At Hampden-Sydney College I learned to appreciate Virginia history and studied the Civil War in detail. Today, I find that I enjoy relaxing with a book on The Civil War or Virginia History. Our hometown is incredibly rich with the American Experience. People fascinate me.

In my profession, I get to meet people from all over the world who have come to Richmond with their families to work, play and establish a comfortable life. I get to see people at their best and also at their most stressed times. I have always attempted to put myself in the shoes of my client. I know that each client has a unique situation, and each piece of Real Estate is ultimately unique.

The one thing that we all have in common is the desire for a safe and worry free existence. I will do my best to help you make the right decisions.


My qualifications and accomplishments have been developed through years and years of Real Estate study and education. I made a commitment 32 years ago to learn the Real Estate business and get trained by the top people in our area.

I completed the Graduate Realtors Institute and the Certified Residential Specialist Designations. My Associate Broker training involved years of production experience and the foundation of understanding the core principles of sound Real Estate business.

Doing my job better is always in my mind. I am constantly adding cutting edge technology and utilizing the many tools that Long and Foster provides it’s agents. I am also committed to the traditional roles of service and marketing that make my clients successful in buying or selling.
